Sorry my fine people. I just investigated Steve's web site and found what I was looking for . I would have to stripe it and have it recoated. I would rather re blacken or re blue. At least I can do that. Nickel is BAD stuff melted. Thanks for replay Mr. John.

The nickel is not melted, a very thin layer is deposited on the surface using an electro plating process. There is also another process called elecrtroless nickle.
Cutting through electro plating is not advisable. You can get edge flaking or pealing.
Assuming the piece is carbon steel, you also have no good way of keeping the exposed cuts from rusting.
